PSNI find class A drugs after walking into Northern Ireland house with door open

A man has been arrested after police in Portadown found drugs at a house where the front door had been left open.

In a Facebook post on Monday afternoon, PSNI Craigavon said its officers carried out the raid at a house where "the home owners have the standard Craigavon home security sense and left their front door unlocked for us".

It meant that the "big red master key wasn't needed, and the door frame is still attached to the wall".

Inside the property officers found cannabis growing and suspected class A drugs.

Referring to the bag of white powder found as part of the search, the spokesperson said it was "a large bag... almost sandwich bag size" and there was enough in it for someone to "make [their] own snow globe".

One man was subsequently arrested for a number of drugs and intent to supply offences.

The spokesperson said that "with almost all of our searches, this one started with someone speaking out" and urged anyone with any information about class A drugs to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

Alternatively anyone who wants to make a report anonymously can contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
